I Gotz Me a Dancer

[ #40091 ]

this was originally posted on my new blogs.perl.org journal, which can be found here.

Sometimes a good time means relaxing with CPAN, reading a POD of something and trying to learn it. At least for me.

Last weekend I treated myself to playing with KiokuDB and Dancer. I'll write on KiokuDB later, this post is on Dancer.

Dancer is a Plack-aware web application framework written by Alexis Sukrieh. It has a built-in simple templating system, but supports Template::Toolkit (a must for me), routes handlers (named matching, regex matching, wildcard matching), simple rapid prototyping and support for multiple configurations and allows separate configurations for separate environments and stages of the software.

After playing with it for a rather short time, I already implemented CRUD. The code comes out clean (which I love), understandable and simple. Pure joy. You should totally check it out!

The only problem is that I want to write an interface which will be hosted on someone else's computer, which only supports CGI. I have no idea how to run it as CGI. Any ideas?

Update: Alexis Sukrieh wrote on how to do this here. Next post will reflect this!
